VirtuEARL – EARL Conference online 2020

Blogs home Featured Image

Sadly, we cannot meet in-person for the EARL Conference this year, so we’ve decided to go virtual with an online version of EARL with VirtuEARL 2020.

During the first two weeks of October, we will be hosting 4 workshops with a wrap of VirtuEARL taking place on Friday 16th October with a full day of fantastic presentations from some brilliant industry speakers.


What is EARL all about?

The Enterprise Applications of the R Language Conference is a cross-sector conference focusing on the commercial usage of the R programming language. If you use R in your organisation, then EARL will have something for you and your team.


How will the conference work online?

VirtuEARL will be hosted on Zoom – which has become an incredibly popular platform for online video calls. Once you have purchased tickets to the parts of VirtuEARL you would like to join, you will be sent the Zoom meeting details. When it’s time for the event, simply click on the meeting link and enjoy! You can ask questions directly to our workshop hosts and presenters by using your microphone or typing a question. The workshops and the presentations will be recorded so if you miss anything on the day or would like to re-watch something afterwards you will have access to the recordings to do so.


What’s on the agenda?

How much will it cost?

All profits from VirtuEARL 2020 will be donated to ‘Data for Black Lives’.

We recognise that are not able to offer the full EARL package that we usually have – and we’ll miss all the networking! – so our prices this year will reflect this.

The Workshops:

Our half-day workshops are usually priced at £200  – but for this years’ VirtuEARL, we are pleased to offer our half-day workshops at a price of £90.

The speaker day:

The speaker presentation day will carry a minimal charge of £9.99 – we have a Zoom capacity of 300 people for Friday’s session and we want to ensure the maximum amount of people can enjoy VirtuEARL!
